Things I Love Thursday - The Little Things

Since I don't love that we added a plumbing leak to to the truck and the Rowdy adventures after my last post, I decided I needed to take a minute to focus on some of the things I do love lately.

Sweet notes from The Princess. She gave me the one on the left after my half marathon last weekend. It says: Good Job Mom You Did A Wonderful Job. I Love You Mom So Much. Love The Princess.

Booking our trip to Hawaii and getting a screaming good deal (even though it took over an hour and three different travel web sites to finally nail it down).

Watching my happy girls spin in their new back-to-school clothes!

Getting this package in the mail, which means a Runnerd giveaway is coming soon. Very soon. It was going to be in today's post actually, but I'm still waiting for life to slow down just a little.


  1. I love the pics of your daughters!

  2. Oh vacation! I'm so jealous!

  3. Woohoo! Hawaii!!!

    Your girls are so cute!

  4. Hooray for Hawaii! I'm going in April to the Big Island!

  5. LOVE the notes that your daughter wrote you. Nothing can top that. Have a great weekend Candice!

  6. Your girls are so sweet. And, Hawaii? So jealous! Sorry about the plumbing thing, though. Hate it when those things happen. Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  8. awww the love notes are SO sweet! :)

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
